I went to Venice with my family as a celebration of passing my PhD viva.
These are the scenes from Venice, it’s a pretty city.
I baked a Japanese cotton cake before going to Venice & immediately fall in love with the light & spongy texture.
I baked it again when I got back to England but a plain & simple sponge cake wouldn’t satisfy my obsessions with photo & food styling.
I poached some pears with white wine then I whipped some cream with salted caramel I made from last time.
My decorating skills become worse… Luckily I bought some shimmer sprays last time when I visited a supermarket.
Shook the can & sprayed on, the cake was covered with a gold shimmer, the photo couldn’t really show the shimmering effect but it does look much prettier.
